It's a shame these f'n stripe jobs are costing so much time, money and aggravation just a few short years into the lifespan of these cars. My car's stripes are going to cost me an extra $1000 just in removal costs to make it ready for paint. What a colossal fail. My brother has a '96 Indy Ram Truck that still has the original vinyl stripes on it. NO ISSUES. My Mom's original '85 IROC has plenty of decals - NO ISSUES.

I think I would find another paint shop if I was being charged an extra $1,000 to sand off the baked stripes during a repaint.

If I wanted the car prepped to reinstall more vinyl - yes about $1000+. Windshield and rear window has to come out - manual stripping, repairing/leveling stripped/damage paint, block sanding, painting, clear coat. Tons of labor involved here to do this the RIGHT way due to the damage. That's why I'm going all the way and having it completely redone with painted stripes and more.

A grand for the labor to remove, polish and replace baked vinyl stripes is more than reasonable. But for a paint shop to charge you an additonal $1,000 while performing a repaint when they are already going to hit the car with a DA sander, thats where my comment of finding another painter comes in.

Holy &*#@, I've never seen anything like that! My car was in the desert its entire life, and the strips aren't anything like that.

You can post photos in your gallery on this site and then link them to posts on here, or what I do, is load the photos into Photobucket and then link them to the posts here. Basically, the photos need to be on the internet somewhere before you can click the litte photo button above to link them.

I would strongly advise NOT to go with the vinyl route. Research how many people have redone their stripes on the SGTs and Hertz cars MULTIPLE times in a very short time frame. Your car is already being repaired from original - might as well do it better and have the stripes painted on. I doubt it will cost significantly more than the vinyl but will last a whole lot longer and be much more enjoyable to own and maintain. Despite what some may think, I also believe that if done well it will enhance the resale value of your car down the road. Afterall, how many $100K++++ 60's era Shelbys are being restored with clear coat paint jobs and cleared over stripes. Doesn't seem to hurt the value one bit, but rather enhances it.

Oh yea, I will also say that the original selling dealer, Galpin Ford, totally f'd up my car before selling it by putting these stripes on. They didn't even get the right size (10") and the center spacing is all over the place up and down the car, too. it also appears that they possibly tried to clear coat the stripes which caused most of the issues you see now. What a shame.

I must agree. What you are doing to the car you may just want to paint them on and forget the tape.

If you are indeed KEEPING your rocker vinyl, I would suggest cleaning it up as best you can and color matching to that if you believe it is in good enough original condition. Are you certain your rocker striping is original?

I am not totally sure of that they are going to shoot a test panel. No one really has a mixing scanner that I can find plus the original stripes aren't in the greatest shape
